Very proud to see our Kilo (Power Quality and Web Data Manager) and our energy monitoring and control solutions featured in the January issue of Plastics Machinery Magazine – USA.
Plastics Machinery Magazine is a monthly magazine focused exclusively on innovations in processing and tooling technologies. Based in Peninsula, Ohio, it is lead by a team of plastics industry veterans that collectively has more than 250 years of experience in publishing for the plastics industry.
The Electrex solution for the plastics industry
The Electrex solution for the plastics industry makes possible the acquisition, analysis and management of data not only related to the electrical energy but also regarding the machinery operating status and other energy carriers used (gas, water, steam, etc.).
Indeed, the Electrex hardware equipment and software integrate in a seamless way the information coming from the different parts of the production line and match this information with the measurements coming from a constant and direct sampling of the load.
In this way it possible to go beyond the main parameters provided from the moulding or extrusion machines and have a wider panorama on the production process and the energy consumption related.

|DATA ACQUISITION – MEASURING
” If You cannot measure it, You cannot improve it.” Lord Kelvin’s quote is totally suitable for energy efficiency programs. Without measurement devices it is not possible to set a benchmark or create a profile of the current consumption.
Data Analytics (DA) is the activity of examining raw data with the purpose of drawing conclusions about that information. Data Analytics is a fundamental step for making intelligent, data-driven decisions.
|BENCHMARK AND PROFILES
New trends, previously not achievable because of the data fragmentation, become visible. Cost centers which are benchmarking below their peers are immediately detected.
Energy Automation is the use of control systems and information technologies to optimize the energy efficiency in the production of goods and delivery of services. The automated tasks are driven by energy consumption / production data.
Since 1993 Electrex designs, develops, manufactures and markets, Made in Italy, instruments and software for energy measurement, management and control. The Electrex solutions are used in the energy efficiency and Energy Automation applications, for the industrial, commercial, public, civil, and renewable energy sectors allowing a rapid return on investment. Electrex, one of the first companies to operate in these sectors, has acquired over the years a considerable experience and competence that few other companies can claim to have. With over 40% of the staff dedicated to R & D, we demonstrate our strong commitment to innovation and continuous improvement in order to anticipate the needs of our customers. We follow our products from design to after sale service and support, being a flexible and dynamic company. That is why Electrex continues to be chosen more and more from both local and international partners. The Electrex products are entirely designed, engineered and manufactured in Italy.
